MG Motor India announced the new Hector SUV for our market earlier this year and the SUV is undergoing rigorous testing in the country. While the vehicle hasn’t been revealed officially, an image of the instrument cluster has come out in the open.
At first glance, it looks quite cool. The speedometer is positioned on the left while at the right you get a reverse tachometer. The meters are outlined by a blue light and in the centre there’s a large 7.0-inch colour display.
This colour display will showcase a variety of information such as audio & navigation data, tyre pressure, trip meters, DTE and the likes. The vehicle is also likely to get a large screen for the infotainment system and will be pretty loaded with features.
Exact specifications of the vehicle aren’t out yet, but the MG Hector will come with a 2.0-litre diesel engine sourced from Fiat, the same unit that powers the Jeep Compass and Tata Harrier. It is highly likely that the SUV will get a 1.5-litre turbo petrol engine too.
The MG Hector will be launched in India by June 2019 and it is expected to be revealed a couple of months before that. The vehicle will rival the likes of the Tata Harrier, Mahindra XUV500 and Jeep Compass.
